It seems Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) is very much in favor of illegal immigration, believing it is far from a political issue for anyone who “cares.”
In an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Wednesday, Wasserman Schultz said she sees immigrants as becoming a part of the “backbone” of American society, claiming a pathway should be made for them to become U.S. citizens.
She blames the Republicans for refusing to “deal with the crisis” involving the young immigrants who stepped across the border without their families, or “at least assign them lawyers to make sure that they can have their case reviewed.” If these children are sent back to their home, she believes they would go back to “certain death.”
“It’s outrageous,” Wasserman Schultz said. “It’s irresponsible, and the Republicans not only have played politics with this for too long, but I think deeply embedded in too many of the Republicans in the House of Representatives is a threat of bigotry that is appalling.”
Her host decided to switch the topic to politics at that time, and said “I’m just going to leave immigration to the side.”
